"I can't breathe" are words that have been spoken out of the mouths of many recently. "I can't breathe" was spoken out, and people are still doing it.
People are speaking out, "I can't breathe" as they wear face masks due to the pandemic. "I can't breathe" is being spoken into the spiritual atmosphere and is releasing demonic activating and curses in the spiritual realm.
As I write this article, I mean no disrespect to George Floyd in his words, "I can't breathe." I own a racial reconciliation and social injustice corporation. Racism is a real issue, and George Floyd couldn't breathe.
While I was in the presence of the Lord, it was revealed that the issues with the masks and racial matters which are causing people to say, "I can't breathe" have resulted in individuals speaking a curse over themselves. Proverbs 18:21a tells us that, "Death and life are in the power of the tongue."
The Bible tells us to call things that are not as so they are and that we will have whatever we say. The Spirit of the Lord was showing me that people were speaking out and declaring into the atmosphere unknowingly. He even convicted me of such words when I wore a mask once and I spoke out, "I can't breathe." I can breathe, and you can breathe.
We teach our children, our churches and our friends the power of our words, but we aren't practicing them ourselves. Why is it OK to teach people not to curse themselves with healing and finances, but let people know it's OK to speak out, "I can't breathe?" I think there is a better way to make a statement against social injustices and the uncomfortableness of wearing a mask.
We are cursing ourselves. I had to repent. We've spent much time teaching on the power of our words, and now we aren't living the very thing we are teaching.
I know there is power in our words. I have seen unbelievers and those young in their faith who don't know the power of their words and declarations manifest the very thing in which they are speaking. My son-in-law is a perfect example of speaking out when he didn't know the power. The moment he met my daughter, he began to declare she would be his wife. Even when she didn't know and when she broke up with him for a few weeks simply because she didn't think he was the one, he kept speaking out. He spoke out but didn't know the power of declarations, yet it manifested.
How many times do we get exactly what we've spoken about? "Death and life are in the power of the tongue" means it can go forth both in the negative and the positive.
There is a spiritual and natural correlation. "I can't breathe" is directly related in the spiritual realm to a spirit of death and a python spirit that comes to squeeze and suffocate. There is a spirit of death over the earth right now in the form of COVID-19.
This pandemic is causing breathing issues resulting in death. The python spirit squeezes and suffocates. It squeezes and causes death.
We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but principalities. When we speak out and declare into the spiritual atmosphere, "I can't breathe," we are feeding a principality that is already in operation and intensifying its strength.
It is time to repent, renounce and remove "I can't breathe" from our vocabulary so we can remove and deactivate the curses and the demonic realm that are feeding on our words.
